Announcing Wild Roots, Feral Future 2019 in the San Juan National Forest, located in Southwest Colorado. For a look into the gathering in past years, see coverage from Unicorn Riot here.
It’s that time of year again… Beltane, May Day approaches… Time to once again announce this year’s Wild Roots Feral Futures (WRFF)!
WRFF is an informal, completely free and non-commercial, and loosely organized camp operating on (less than a) shoe-string budget, formed entirely off of donated, scavenged, or liberated supplies and sustained through 100% volunteer effort. (Stay tuned for fundraiser info!)
WRFF 2019 will take place from June 15th-23rd, with folks arriving on the land a few days prior to set up, and staying a few days later to clean up thoroughly. Site location scouting will continue into early June, at which point a consensus decision will be made. The exact location will be announced some time around June 10th. WRFF traditionally takes place within the San Juan National Forest (with the exception of last year, when the entire SJNF was closed due to the 416 Fire near Durango, CO). Last year we celebrated our ten year anniversary, and reflected on the changes over the last decade, in ourselves and our lives, in our movements of resistance, and in our culture at large. Much has shifted, and we intend to shift in response.
This year, we intend to cultivate focus on topics of mutual aid disaster relief, resistance to borders, migrant detention and deportation, local ecological struggles, front line indigenous resistance, anti-fascism and anti-racism, and much more!
As always, WRFF is entirely participant-driven, so we need your help! We’re asking for folks to join us from far and wide to network, share skills and information, build relationships, and more!
If you are interested in facilitating a workshop, talk, skill share, or other event at WRFF 2019, feel free to email us at feralfutures [at] riseup [dot] net, but official workshop registration is not required!
